  6. 6. Results “I think it went very well. It’s the kind of lesson you can make last a bit longer, or cut it short …to your needs. I thought it was very good the way the lesson was structured. In terms of classroom management, it was very easy to keep on top of the class because they were engaged not just by the game itself, but by the first part too. It also encouraged lots of language from the students. “ – Teacher involved in project
